In a poll by YouGov, more than a third of employed people admitted to missing out on a ‘good night’s sleep’ because of their money worries.
That’s a statistic that Lifetime is working hard to change.
We partner with employers to deliver help and guidance to employees when it comes to financial matters.
The way we do it is via a seamless programme of financial education, planning and advice that helps staff get to grips with the money issues that are keeping them up at night, make plans for the future, and gives them the confidence to take full control of their financial situation.
Leading to that sought after feeling of financial wellbeing. That sense of security. That all important peace of mind.
For those people battling to manage their day to day finances, or even those planning for (and worrying about) retirement in an ever-changing landscape, the stress and anxiety that is subsequently heaped on individuals naturally has an impact on their performance at work.
It is therefore in HR’s and the employer’s best interest to find ways of helping their workforce, however they can, to achieve financial stability.
A lot of employers now recognise the link between financial wellbeing and mental health. Not to mention the link between an employee’s financial wellbeing and the organisation’s productivity.
Providing access to guidance, education and someone to talk to is one of the first steps to helping your people.
Offering the pathway to a financial plan – and expert advice – is something that can be of major benefit for all concerned.
Together, let’s make a difference. And we’ll all sleep a whole lot better knowing we are doing the best we can.
